Address at Rice University
Collectible publication made for John F. Kennedy's speech at Rice University from September 12, 1962.
Historical images with gradient overlays were used to capture the colorful chaos that became the backdrop of the 1960s. A decade in the height of the Cold War, the Civil Rights Movement, and the Space Race.
Important technological breakthroughs such as the steam engine and light bulb were highlighted using diagrams to show how far technology had progressed to the point mankind had the technology to break out atmosphere to explore the stars and beyond.
Photographs of pinnacle moments like the Standoff at Checkpoint Charlie and the Berlin Air Lift were used to highlight the contrast in extremes of human actions that affected the world. One part of humanity was ready to reignite a new World War, the other wanted to rebuild the world on something new.
